Spontaneous Reciprocal Translocation during Megasporogenesis of Maize Haploids

Abstract

IN the course of an investigation of haploidy in maize, a number of haploids were pollinated by normal diploid males. The progenies were grown to anthesis and classified for pollen abortion, with the thought that some of them would be monosomic, that is, would arise from n-1 eggs. An F1 plant was found to be semi-sterile (male) and was self-pollinated and… (More)
